Looks like the paradigm shift in digital media distribution is coming:
Check out Odemax plus other platform like it. I am sure Sony, Youtube, vimeo and Netflix etc will launch something but nothing this easy and efficient on bandwidth. Read all about it here as some of the technical stuff is way over my head:
In nutshell its a platform to view, distribute, contribute and showcase any 4K content in an efficient and internet friendly format. Got good 4K content and want to share and earn some money maybe - you could cut out the middlemen and publish it yourself. This is for real and this platform does not require fast internet bandwidth.
One snag and that is you need some sort of set box and a special code for the media and a 4K television. Still early days but for those of you thinking of potentially making money from your 4K or UltraHD content but don't want heavily compressed footage then here is an alternative vehicle....Better go and shoot something good.
